An introduction to Supervision Skills – to help you support your pastoral staff

There continues to be increasing demand on education staff to support children, young people, and their families on a regular basis. Many of these children have complex social and emotional issues.

In addition some services are experiencing cuts. Dealing with risk, trauma and uncertainty for school staff can have a negative impact on stress levels and if left unattended can lead to absence and  burn-out. If you are interested in providing safe, supportive, and effective supervision for your team, this course is for you.

By the end of the one and a half days you will;

  • Have a greater understanding of the purpose of supervision
  • Have strengthened your communication skills for supervisory practice
  • Have had a go at putting  into practice a model of supervision
  • Be more confident to offer a basic level of supervision to pastoral and support staff in your organisation

The one and a half day course uses a mixture of theory as well as practical, hands on and experiential learning.  A must do for anyone who is interested in supporting staff to be the best they can for the children and young people they work with. A really useful course which compliments many of the other mental health courses we run.

NB This does not aim to replace specialist supervision which some staff often access, it is simply an introduction to supervision skills to help provide better daily support.

We are providing this training in response to school requests and Julie Castleman is highly experienced in this area, to view her biography please click here.
